Seen through the eyes of a child, Christmas is probably the most magical and mystical time of the year, full of new discoveries and adventures. With the Christmas Wonderland at the European Hansemuseum, Lübeck offers its young visitors an adventure playground in an idyllic location far from the all the hustle and bustle.

Everything our young Christmas visitors could desire is on offer here. Children can explore the lovingly designed pixie forest (“Wichtelwald”) and act out their own Christmas story. The 200 m² skating rink, which is reserved exclusively for small skaters under 1.60 m, provides another winter delight. Even beginners will take the rink by storm thanks to the cute skating penguins. And while the kids are playing and letting off steam you can just sit back and let the team at the “Wichtelstube” (pixie inn) take care of you for a while. The Christmas Wonderland is waiting for you and your family!
